Pretty Vicious – ‘It’s Always There’ Appearing suddenly and without any introduction in late 2014, Pretty Vicious sent music radars spinning when they posted ‘Cave Song’ on soundcloud. They now offer up new track ‘It’s Always There’, which premiered on Radio 1 last night as the Hottest Record in the World. Born, raised and still, of course, based in Merthyr Tydfil in Wales, Pretty Vicious are a brilliantly young 4-piece band, fronted by 18 year old Brad Griffiths. ‘Cave Song’ – their debut track demonstrated an impressive ability to compress small town teenage life into a 4 minute indie rock smash. ‘It’s Always There’ continues to prove that there’s a lot up the sleeves of these four young men that may not, on first impressions, be completely expected.
